Stan and I have known him personally for nine years and have much respect and admiration for him. He is a man of integrity and has the temperament and common sense judgment to admirably serve as your Superior Court judge.
Being a family man, and experiencing first hand increasing crime and violence, he is committed to making Walla Walla a safer community for his family and for yours.
We are confident that Richard has the legal expertise, experience and background to make a difference in our community, having served as judge, attorney and civic volunteer.
He has spent nine years as a Municipal Court judge, seven years as Superior Court commissioner, 21 years as District Court judge pro tem and 26 years doing private law practice, with emphasis on criminal and family law, areas that take up 80 percent of a Superior Court judge's time.
If you want a man of integrity and vast experience who is committed to building a safer place to live for you and your family, I urge you to join in our support and vote for the best candidate, Richard Wernette, for Superior Court judge, Department 2, on Aug. 7.
